The last vehicle of a train is supposed to carry a red lamp at the rear. Earlier, the requirement was for merely an oil lamp, which was often missing or very feeble. In recent years provision of an electric lamp, as mandated by the rules, has become more common.

Last vehicle indications are of different types. A large 'X' is often seen painted on the rear of the coach that is the last one. A set of concentric circles may also be seen, although this seems to be going out of use

as of 2008. EMU/DMU rakes have a smaller painted 'X' (red on white) at the rear, or sometimes a series of diagonal strokes painted on; these painted symbols are all in addition to the lamp mentioned above. In addition, a small board with 'LV' (black on yellow) is often attached to the rear of the vehicle (it stands for Last Vehicle).

If a train passes by a station or signal cabin without the appropriate last vehicle indication (or without confirmation of the number of coaches or wagons), it is assumed that the train has separated and suitable emergency procedures are brought into play.

There are some cases where a last vehicle indication is not required — for instance, when the number of coaches or wagons in a train can be passed on to each block section after verification from the previous block section at the time the line clear indication is obtained (and with exchange of private numbers). The information is also provided to the section controllers. In some cases when working entirely within one block section, an 'LV' sign is not needed if the number of coaches or wagons is communicated by telephone to the next station.

The primary document which provides a train driver with details regarding where he is required to slow down his train during the run, the speed at which he has to drive, and so on is called a "caution order". A caution order will tell a driver the names of the stations between which work is being undertaken, the kilometerage of the spot, the nature of the work being done, and, most important, the speed at which he must drive.

Caution orders are generally prepared by station masters of certain nominated stations called

'Notice stations'. For example, some years back, the Howrah-Bombay Mail on arriving at Nagpur received a caution order which lists speed restrictions on the way upto Badnera. On arrival at Badnera, which is again a notice station, the driver receives a fresh caution order that was applicable upto Bhusaval, and so on.

The speed restrictions mentioned in a caution order fall into two categories. Permanent speed restrictions which apply all the year round, refer to locations that have an inherent feature making it necessary for a train to slow down at the spot. A blind curve, a bridge that is weak, or a ghat section whose geological structure is known to be unsuitable for high speeds are examples of locations where a permanent speed restriction has to be imposed. On the other hand, if the track or the formation develops a defect somewhere along the route, trains will need to slow down but only as long as repair work is in progress. In such a case, a 'temporary speed restriction' has to be brought into force.
